Seed Research Fund

Initiated for the first time in 2014, the “Koç University Seed Research Fund (KU-SRF) Program” is designed to support innovative early-stage research projects from all disciplines represented in our university (science, medicine, engineering, administrative sciences, economics, social sciences and humanities, law and nursing). KU-SRF principally aims to support creativity, out-of-the-box thinking and curiosity-driven research; to facilitate scientific development and innovation.

The seed fund program is open to all full-time KU faculty. After the selection process, each successful application is awarded up to 75.000 TL per year, for a maximum duration of one year.
